My First Practice Cake

I have decided to try my hand a cake decorating. We have so many birthdays during the year with five daughters and if I could make pretty cakes, I would make more for special occasions and holidays. I have wanted to take the Wilton class, but havent been able to make it work with my schedule yet. So I used my Michael's coupons and started collecting supplies and have been watching You Tube videos. This is my first try at fondant. My youngest daughter's birthday is in a few days and I hope to make her one with several layers, just to prove I can do it. I just wanted to share it with you. It was really fun.

Happy Sewing...and,


  1. Very impressive for a "practice" cake....great job!

  2. Oh my gosh, Susan, that cake is fabulous! I can't believe it's the first one you've ever done. It looks totally perfect and professional. Maybe you should sell cakes, too! :o) My next door neighbor (who has 8 children!) makes cakes for people and there is actually a pretty darn good business in it. Have you given that a thought? If all of your cakes turned out like this one, you'd be baking all the time!!!
